I made the carbon fiber tube. Epoxy impregnated cloth wrapped around a 5/8" wooden dowel. I think the OD is 1" but it may be 1 1/8". The bottom cap is a pvc furniture "anti slip" disc that goes on the bottom of chair legs. I ran a 3" 10x22 cap head screw through it into the ASA plug.
I would like to find a machined aluminum cap that has a 5/8" centering guide, but the chances are pretty slim. I got the idea from the Deadlywinds website. They make a carbon fibre grip for the autococker.
I have done a few marker mods with carbon fiber parts.... this TiPX carbine is one of my favorites
